Voter Registration

Registration is subject to dates on the Local Elections Calendar.  You are not eligible to vote if you have been convicted of a felony and your rights have not been restored.

To register and vote, you must be:

  1. a US citizen
  2. a resident of Adams County and Idaho for 30 days
  3. at least 18 years of age

You need to re-register if you have:

  1. changed your name
  2. moved to a different address
  3. not voted within the last 4 years

Same Day Registration is available in Idaho which gives you the opportunity to register on Election Day.

To register on Election Day, you must:

  1. appear in person
  2. present photo identification (such as an Idaho driver’s license or identification card) and
  3. proof of 30-day residency (any document which contains a valid address in the precinct in which you reside)

If you have questions about voter registration, please call the Clerk’s Office at 253-4561 or follow this link to the Idaho Votes website.
